poster templates

Below, you can download a set of 10 sample poster templates. These templates are customized for my home campus (CSU Monterey Bay), however they are easily modified to fit the needs of researchers at other institutions. Please modify them to fit your specific needs (i.e. content, color palate, photos, logos, and fonts). The templates are available in both Apple Keynote and Microsoft PowerPoint formats.
